Brexit could help cause a dramatic change in the Welsh political landscape at this election

15 Nov

For over a century the Labour Party have dominated the Welsh political landscape, usually winning between two thirds and three quarters of parliamentary seats. However, in 2016, the Labour Party – along with Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats – discovered just how out of touch they were with their electorate as Wales voted to […]

By standing candidates in Labour seats, Nigel Farage could yet be throwing a big spanner in the works for Boris Johnson

15 Nov

As I predicted at the start of the campaign, the ‘Poll of Polls’ trend analysis shows how the Conservatives and Labour are starting to pull away from their respective rivals. The Brexit Party’s support is declining relative to the Conservatives, and Liberal Democrat support is declining relative to Labour. We could be heading for another […]

Is the support of Brexit-backing voters in ex-industrial towns key to the Tories winning the election?

15 Nov

The Brexit Party’s announcement that it will not stand in the 317 seats the Conservatives won at the 2017 General Election is a notable development – but not quite the game-changer some make it out to be. The risk remains of a “pro-Leave split” allowing Labour to cling on to Brexit-leaning seats such as Halifax […]

The Brexit Party is right to assist a Boris Johnson victory for the greater cause

14 Nov

The stakes in this election are incredibly high for all of us who have fought long and hard for Brexit. We have resurgent Liberal Democrats who think nothing of simply cancelling the result of the largest ever vote for any single issue ever held in this country. Didn’t happen, just ignore it and carry on […]

Here’s the deal on candidates that Boris Johnson should do with Nigel Farage today

14 Nov

Following Monday’s announcement by Nigel Farage that he would not stand candidates in the 317 seats won by the Conservatives in 2017 (including my own, Rutland and Melton), the first YouGov poll taken since that announcement shows the Tories clearing 40% for the first time since the Brexit Party was established. Interviewed on the BBC […]

The Labour Party urgently needs to address what kind of Brexit deal it would seek from Brussels

13 Nov

It may be that the General Election next month will produce a working majority for the Conservatives. It will then, no doubt, be government policy to implement the Brexit deal negotiated with Brussels by Boris Johnson last month. It is quite possible that this will not happen. Instead, we may well find that we are […]

If Nigel Farage is putting country before party, he should stand down more candidates before nominations close

11 Nov

Until yesterday there was a danger that Brexit looked like it could be beginning to slip through our fingers. Like millions of other Leavers, the Hartlepool announcement by Nigel Farage has transformed my despair from the Brexit Party leader’s statement on 1st November, to hope and optimism. Despite being an advocate of a Leave Alliance, […]

Labour has days to dump its unappealing Brexit policy before its manifesto is agreed

10 Nov

No matter how hard Labour tries to pretend otherwise, the forthcoming general election is a Brexit election. It is defined by Brexit in the same way as the 2017 general election was. At that time, Labour was able to get a hearing on its domestic policies because, at the very last minute, a sentence that […]

I never thought I’d say it, but we Brexiteers have to trust a Tory to deliver Brexit – or risk no Brexit at all

10 Nov

It’s not easy changing political parties although Boris Johnson’s hero and mine, Winston Churchill, did it twice, moving from the Conservatives to the Liberals in 1904 and back again in 1925. I joined the Conservatives in October, following the Prime Minister’s successful negotiation of a deal with the EU and its endorsement by the likes […]

Put country before party and back the Leave-backing candidate best-placed to win where you live

10 Nov

Another Brexit deadline passed us by at the end of last month, such was the inevitable result of a Remain-dominated Parliament. However, there is nothing inevitable about the future of our Parliament or the future of our country. Now opportunity is once again in the hands of the people of Britain as we prepare for […]

How Tory voters switching to the Brexit Party could deliver another hung parliament

9 Nov

Over the last few days I’ve been giving a few talks explaining why we should treat the polls with caution. If you look only at the latest polls then the outcome of the election appears fairly certain. Ever since a majority of MPs voted to hold the election the incumbent Conservative Party has averaged 38%, […]

Boris Johnson needs a Conservative majority at the election to Get Britain Out of the EU

9 Nov

In the last few weeks Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party have been ratcheting up their rhetoric attacking Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal – and the Conservatives – following the announcement no electoral pact has been reached between these two parties. We at Get Britain Out have been considering our position in this General Election […]

If I were still advising Nigel Farage, I’d urge him to scrap his strategy that could see Brexit blocked entirely

7 Nov

The latest polling from the constituency of Portsmouth South made worrying reading for Brexiteers. It showed that despite a fall in support for Labour as well as the Conservatives, a decent showing for the Brexit Party in fourth place on 14% left the Liberal Democrats in the lead and poised to gain the seat. The […]
